The Valdosta Daily Times

-- — Some taxes are used for roadside clean-up. Many taxpayers fearlessly litter roadsides to get a benefit from that fee. Why pay two dumping taxes? But litterers give law enforcement many chances to fine them, to get more revenues. Since revenues from litter fines are not celebrated, must be a small amount vs. the opportunity.

The Obama administration has been nothing but a roadblock when states have tried to enact legislation to stop illegal immigration claiming it's federal. Now that states are making pot legal which also conflicts with federal law, nothing from Obama. I guess if you're a law breaker, it's all good. .

That "Seasons Greetings" sign has been there every Christmas for years. Why are you just now starting to complain about it? There is no "War on Christmas"! Your remote must be stuck on Fox News.

I just wanted to say thanks for all the good work the Salvation Army does and thank all the red kettle bell ringers. Merry Christmas!

If every driver backed up on Jerry Jones would begin blowing their horns then maybe something would be done about this traffic mess.

One of the differences between liberals and conservatives is this: liberals think all money is the government's, and that your earnings are just an “allowance.” Conservatives understand that the money you earn is yours and that the Government gets an allowance from you.

To the lady in El Toreo Tuesday night. Your child was obnoxious. I hope you enjoyed your two magaritas and text fest while your child disrupted the entire restaurant and hit me in the back of the head repeatedly.

The high amount of red lights in Valdosta is due to the poor quality of drivers in Valdosta. Having to put a red light on Gornto for people to turn out off old Wood Valley is proof.

To the war on Christmas

person who complained about the Seasons Greetings sign at Five Points. That sign has gone up EVERY Christmas for at least the past 30 years. I remember passing it on the way to elementary school. You must be new in this town!

Congratulations to Monte Copeland for not giving up on graduating. I am proud of you.

To the mail driver on Boone Drive: you are tearing up the road by our mail boxes. Please do not pull so close.
